Carolina Drama

Is a song by the Raconteurs (and i haven't been able to stop listening to it!!!), people are talking lots about The Dead Weather right now and thats cool 'cos they're awesome!!!....but this song is true and real narrative story telling in proper song form!'s like a kind of song that either Bob Dylan or Robbie Robertson or Van Morrison or Richard Thompson or Bruce Springsteen would write, but no...this is contemporary song writing with traditional methods that just doesn't appear in most contemporary's got characters, a narrative and concise plot....and the main moments of drama happen in the music!....and also Jack White's vocal is fucking remarkable as it drives the whole damn thing!!!!
